Notice of Injury Legal Definition

© Pribanic & Pribanic

Notice of Injury legal definition: The function of notice of injury is making your employer aware that you have been hurt on the job. Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, an employee who is hurt on the job must report their injury to their employer. If the injury or illness is not reported within 120 days from the date of injury – or the date you were aware of a work-related illness – no compensation will be awarded.
